A bit of a left field question here: one of the supervisors in our warehouse is really into Camaros. He forwarded me an article that has a section on auto parts availability for muscle cars and he's now put us in preliminary talks to start a line of muscle car plastic interior trim. The thing is that he keeps pointing out how important the chrome look was in those cars (I'm not really well-versed in muscle cars myself so I'm obviously taking his word for it). As far as I know, that chrome look would have to be achieved through color-matching after the plastic parts had been molded. I guess my question is that there's no possible way at all to get a chrome look to plastic without painting it after the fact, correct? This is our first time trying to get a metallic look to plastic (a hassle I'd prefer to avoid but I can't argue with my associate's passion for this project).
